The Locke Restaurant, Athlone.
A dining experience in a 150 year old church!
Set in a building with a beautiful history as a Presbyterian church. The Locke Restaurant, open on The Docks in Athlone since 2012, is a new incarnation of a much loved, local favourite, restaurant.
Originally the well-known Le Cheateau Restaurant, a busy, successful restaurant for many years, that original much-loved restaurant has now been restored and tastefully brought back to life, designed by the new proprietors, which includes the main restaurant being fully restored on the second level of this dramatic and stunning building.
The core of The Locke Restaurant is the second level with its high church beamed ceilings, warm, atmospheric lighting, panelling and rich carpet and. A cosy snug bar at the down stairs has a dramatic feel about it, with a gorgeous 120 year old piano as its main feature, which is not just an ornament. There is live, nightly piano and harp sessions.


We seek out the best establishments in every part of Ireland for inclusion in our guides and, because we work independently and without charging a fee, you know that we can be trusted to lead you to the best places over a wide range of categories. Good Food Ireland is an industry driven food tourism organisation which was established in November 2006. Many good food operators in a cross-section of establishments all around the island from restaurants to accommodation, pubs to food shops to cookery schools wanted to be recognised and endorsed for their commitment to using Irish, local and artisan food produce. They wanted to share experiences and be cooperatively marketed to the domestic and international tourist. Agriculture and Tourism, two vital economies for Ireland have so much in common and are yet so far apart. Through Good Food Ireland the industry from both these sectors share a common belief and come together as one. Good Food Ireland brings you the visitor or domestic consumer what we believe is the only way to get a true taste of Ireland.

We had Sunday dinner here for Mother's day and had a lovely time. The food was delicious - the pork belly was amazing as was the seafood. We all really enjoyed it. The vegetables were freshly cooked and just fab. We had starters and desserts also and everthing was great-portion sizes were more than generous. The restaurant is a former church and so has lots of character with beautiful beams showing through the ceiling but it does leave the area a litlle chilly and dark. The staff were great from arrival to finish. We will definitely be back. Great place!
